Weekday Roundup: Valby, Eudaly Have Speedy Starts to Season

On Thursday night, East Lake junior, Parker Valby, made her outdoor debut at the East Lake Early Bird Invitational in a 5:00.01 1600m and 10:34 outdoor debut -- two huge PRs and a current US no. 1 in the 3200m for this young standout. 

Valby, Taylor Stone of Osceola, Jacquelyn Abanses of Steinbrenner, and Meadow Millett of Mitchell HS battled it out in the 1600m  with Stone going 5:06.65, Abanses 5:09.24, and Millet 5:10.24 to kick off their seasons. 

Mary Ellen Eudaly, had a stellar high school track debut on Tuesday running a 5:05.94 1600m to kick off her freshman season with a strong win at the Jesuit Tri-Meet.

The HB Plant young talent led her varsity girls cross-country team to their eleventh team state title in early November, and this performance demonstrates Eudaly will be a new force in the 4A girls distance world.

According to championship coach, Roy Harrison, Eudaly ran the entire race all out front pushing the pace the entire race, wind and all affecting the four lap distance. 

Valby and Eudaly are taking the west side by storm and we expect to see some very spectacular distance performances out of these West Florida athletes. 

Here is the weekday roundup of all the elite performances from earlier this week.
